Building momentum is key, says City winger

NORWICH City's Nathan Redmond believes Manchester United's Barclays Premier League visit to Carrow Road on Saturday (12:45pm) can provide the perfect foundation for top-flight survival.

A crunch run of fixtures sees City host the Red Devils and Watford in quick succession, before a season-closing trip to Everton a week on Sunday.

"We've got a massive week with three games in eight days so we've got to give it our all," the 22-year-old winger told

"Everyone is looking forward to it and is up for the challenge. We're not thinking about other teams because first and foremost we've got to get a good result ourselves.

"We believe we can get a result going into every game and that will be no different this weekend. Momentum will be key, but we've got to focus on the Manchester United match first.

"We'll try to get the three points and then look to go on from there."

Redmond says his side can draw on comparably intense experiences from the past, including last season's three-game promotion shootout in the Sky Bet Championship play-offs.

"It's a different scenario, but we had a similar pressure last year," he explained when evaluating the context of City's current run-in.

"That time it wasn't a fight for our lives, it was about ensuring nobody stopped us from getting to where we wanted to be. Our attitude now is about fighting to stay in the league.

"It's a different kind of pressure, but if we bring all the experience we've had I'm sure we can achieve what we want to. The supporters are going to play a vital role in these last few games.

"They have been with us all season and throughout my time here as a whole, so we know we can count on them."
